Psalms 34:7-11 (33:8-12 LXX)

The Angel of the Lord shall encamp around those who fear Him,
And He will deliver them.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who hopes in Him.
Fear the Lord, you His saints,
For there is no want for those who fear Him.
Rich men turned poor and went hungry;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

Encouraging Words

Our loving and merciful God does not just lay down a whole bunch of laws for us to follow and then withdraw from us knowing that we will never be able to measure up to His expectations. God created mankind in Adam and Eve so that He could walk with them and commune with them in the garden. He only had one rule to follow and when that was broken so was the opportunity to have this intimate communion with God. Jesus, the Son of God, one third of the Trinity, restored the ability to commune with God once again. This passage of the Old Testament points forward to the time that Jesus would come and reestablish our relationship with God. So, why would we not, as children, run to Him, listen to Him, and learn as He teaches us how to fear our Lord and be in relationship and communion with Him once again? Glory be to God!
